Today is Top Ten Tuesday – A weekly bookish list created by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is:
Ten Reasons I Love Fantasy
1. Magical systems
So the different types of magic you get from the fire breathing dragons to magic transformed through metals. I love the take on all the different versions and exploring how an author constructs it.
2. World Building
This is probably my favourite part of fantasy, it gives you somewhere new to discover and get immersed into.
3. Magical Creatures
So if you’ve read my blog you’ll know my fascination with creatures and how I want to create a bestiary and I love exploring more and more versions and everything that comes with concurring each and every one of them.
The stories all tend to be pretty out of this world for the sheer fact that there are no restrictions but the ones that do it best use the fanatical elements but conduct them in a realistic manner that you just believe that it could happen.
With so much going on it can be pretty easy to get lost but the main elements really bring it all together.
When I say characters I particularly like the different possible races and species that exist how you grow to love them and their cultures and history.
The main characters for the most part tend to be pretty amazing and strong and it is the best place to find kickass female characters and you tend to love the main characters and grow attached.
So with all the magic the villains tend to be incredible evil and that makes them all the better and so easy to hate.
Covers such as Mistborn and Lunar Chronicles and The Throne of Glass are just so beautify and fair enough it may be hit or miss but you’ve got to admit they can be stunning.
So I read books for an escape and I struggle with contemporary and romance because they tend to be closer to home. But with fantasy you are completely removed and it’s far more appealing to me.
